Visual Designer

Hello there! I’m happy we get to share some good vibes right now. Check it all out and always feel welcome to reach out @davallree or hit up my inbox. Whether it be about design, the unknown-but-exciting-future, your troubles, or just about life, let's talk for a while.  You could also help me out and proofread my résumé.

Currently, I contribute to the Material Design team at Google San Francisco as a visual designer. Recently, I have contributed to the defining of Google’s Material Theme and the visual exposition of Material.io, the home of Material Design. Theming, layout, and new ways to express identity through technology really get me excited, but so does ice cream or a pretty sunset. My only goal is to remain thoughtful with all I encounter.  I currently live in San Francisco with some plants, the hills, and my canary... and we would love to hear how you are doing.

The Lispish Linguistic Guide is an attempt to bring the act of lisping into the realm of normalcy, sanity and maturity. It is dedicated to anyone who has suffered judgment based only on how they speak. This publication’s purpose is to translate the background, definition and feelings toward sigmatisms, otherwise known as lisps, into their own language, Lispish. The vehicle for this solution is a new letterform and symbol that represents the sound made by "lispers".

The end product for this concept was a phrasebook of sorts; the booklet is written in both English and Lispish by way of mirrored text and imagery utilizing the Lispish symbol, the Lim. The mirrored pages are mostly the same, but have slight differences, just as everyone's voice or way of speaking.
